Today REM's song "Low" feels just right. Sometimes I feel okay about not having children; it feels like life will go on and there will be other things.
But at other times - when there have been a few too many baby pictures on Facebook and a few too many happy families on television and just not enough screaming children annoying me at the library, I start to feel a bit sorry for myself. I don't like missing out on all of that stuff - and I am. I don't like having my life turn out this way. I don't like not having to be able to make my own choices. And it makes me feel low.
